On 3/9/20, at approximately 5:50 p.m., a male and female subject went to a retail a jewelry store and told the sales associate that they were just looking. The associate then informed the subjects about payment options. At that point, the male subject asked to see a chain. After he tried on the chain, he asked if he could see a longer chain. He made this request as his female accomplice inquired about payment options and ear piercings. The female subject said she would be interested in ear piercings when her daughter was born

At this point, the male subject said he was “”no longer interested” and handed the associate a chain. The associate noticed the chain was not the same weight and that the male subject had switched the chains. The male and female subject then quickly exited the store.
